Keeping up with Searcher

Ask A Captain week 11 Feature: Captain Aaron Remy


For all of our Searcher friends who have been filling the “Ask A Captain!” inbox with emails wanting to know more about our captains, this is for you! This “Ask A Captain!” features an integral part of our Searcher family, Captain Aaron Remy!  He’s been described as a Renaissance man and a “5-tool player,” possessing creative ingenuity and hilarious wit.  He’s also our only Searcher captain who landed a fish on our deck before he even turned 10!

Captain Aaron has been fishing since he was 5 years old and comes from a family whose history is entwined with both San Diego sportfishing as well as with Searcher.  His grandfather, Mitch, was cook for several years on Searcher, and Aaron has just started his 15th year as a member of Team Searcher!

For the current season, he has already put in over 100 days on the water, and is proud of it! He’s got a passion for fishing that is contagious and has built a solid reputation for dependability, trust, and skill.

Aaron is one of the tops in the industry in the next generation of sportfishing. He excels in and has great enthusiasm for all aspects of our business. He’s like a 5-tool player in baseball: he can do it all and he can do it well. He’s a great rod and reel fisherman, a great boat operator/navigator, he’s wonderful with customers and is mechanically inclined (he can fix anything!), and he’s got good interactions with the crew. He is well-respected throughout the fleet by his peers. Aaron has an incredible knack for learning how to catch fish and has learned from some of the best long-range captains in the fleet.”
